Abuse  »  

Surviving the many variations of abuse requires a clearer understanding of what validates abuse for any sub category or subject matter defined as such. For many people, ... the identification of abuse is based on personal opinion and awareness which is subject to changes as we mature into a clearer understanding of what is accepted as appropriate behavior. Surviving abuse implies a past tense or previous occurrence. If the aim is to survive abuse than perhaps the best way to do that is to have a better understanding on what typically defines being victimized by another. Once we have a clearer understand of what constitutes abusive conditions and situations than we stand a better chance of establishing preventative mindsets advantageous for survival. Setting clear boundaries and expectations are an important key to prevent becoming a victim. Situations of abuse involving people who are less fortunate or dependent on others benefit greatly from the avocation of family and friends. Other forms of abuse such as "social abuse" can be alleviated by adjusting how we react to being attacked by another. Abusive behavior can be curtailed or avoided for the most part but does not guarantee sanctuary from the attempts or actions of others. Awareness, our demeanor and appropriate reactions to abusive environments are key in diminishing the odds of becoming a victim of most all forms of abuse.

.

The following forms of abuse are addressed here:   Physical , Emotional , Verbal , Sexual , Financial

Asteroid & Meteors  » 

How many people actually consider preparing for an impact to Earth from a celestial object? The answer may be surprising to most yet the reality of making preparations does not extend beyond saying goodbye to family and friends with the premise that it may not be a survivable event so .... what's the point. Humans have a survival instinct. Many people either fail to act on their instincts or they are unsure and simply fail to act or respond to important issues. As a result, ... many people simply roll with the punches allowing life to happen around them while calamities are not addressed or prepared for. Others just don't believe they will be effected by such calamities and choose to meander about the planet with over confidence. An asteroid or meteor strike is typically represented in cinematic films as an UN-survivable event which discourages most people from trying. Survival minded people take in consideration that events like these are subject to variations that offer a chance to live if preparations are made correctly. Variations such as the size of the object and locations of impact are elements to be considered. Without appropriate knowledge the inner will to survive becomes diminished and unresponsive to prepare for any calamity. The aim is to gain that knowledge which is conducive for surviving anticipated events and then act on what we have learned in hopes of increasing the odds to survive. Asteroids, meteors and other debris hitting the Earth has happened in the past and so shall it happen again in the future. Events are cyclic and re-occurring. Values of impact and severity are contingent upon the variations. Survival "IS" possible.

Biological Events  »

Drought  »  Mini 123

Droughts are often not taken too seriously by most people who have grown accustomed to looking no further than a faucet or supplied spout to get the water they want or need. It is only after the water stops running that it captures our full attention and by then it may be too late. Especially for those who lack secondary supplies or methods for acquiring water.

Earthquakes  » 

Surviving an earthquake seems like a "no brainer", ... especially for those who have experienced tremors most of our lives. However, ... earthquakes can destroy structures and property, displace families from their homes as well as cause serious injury or death.  Our life spans are relatively short in comparison to geological cycles which are reoccurring here on earth. Most inhabitants of Earth have generally been spared major instances when massive or catastrophic adjustments occur to the planet.  History depicts that massive earthquakes are cyclic and inevitable. Detrimental changes can occur across the surface of the planet which can have huge impacts for a vast number of life forms living here. As we have seen over the years, ... earthquakes have wrecked societies and caused a tremendous loss of life. As the cycle continues to count down towards a climactic shift it is imperative for survival minded people to consider taking measures in safeguarding our lives and those closest to us in preparation for a cataclysmic event.

Economic collapse  » 

OK, .... so here it is in summery. It is possible and very likely to survive a number of disasters and catastrophes if prepared correctly. Economic collapse is not only survivable but easier to accomplish than most people believe. An Economy is essentially the word used in association with the flow of money and the values given to it. Those values can be placed on a scale to represent a balance between availability of funds vs the things we purchase.  "Supply and demand" is the term used to justify the balance between the two sides of the scale, [Alt source]. When the value of a regional or global currency becomes worth far less than the products needed by the social structure it can create conditions of severe hardship where money stops flowing and everyday products become UN-affordable. When a currency becomes worthless and collapses it can create a situation which places the lives of those who depend on the system at risk. Most citizens who rely on the flow of currency are generally faced with the uncertainty of how to acquire the things they need to survive. The key to surviving an economic collapse is to become less dependent on the economic system or on those who created it. To evolve to a higher level of self reliance. Is it possible to survive a financial meltdown? 

YES!!!

EMP  » 

Despite the living conditions imposed upon recipients of a catastrophic EMP this is a situation that can be prepared for. It is not such a big deal for those who practice self reliance and a survival like independence from the "Grid". For those who are dependent on the grid of electricity this can present itself to be a difficult situation and can be unforgiving for most people. Learning new skills can make the difference between surviving and perishing. It is a massive misconception that governmental agencies will be there for us all if such a scenario occurs. It is also a suspected belief that our prepping neighbor will lend a hand and provide the food and sustenance we will need to survive until "the government" or "someone" does something to fix the problem. That sort of thinking is self destructive and could be our UN-doing. Restoration of the power grid, ... if at all, ... is subject to the conditions, availability of equipment and schedules. With that being said it is reasonable to assume that life without electrical power may extend for a great deal of time. The aim is to have the skills and supplies as well as the discipline and determination to make it through the restoration period for the electrical grid or create a grid for ourselves using the appropriate skills we have. This will present many challenges which include the implementation of security measures as well as being faced with moral dilemma's when turning people away for what ever reason we may have at the time. We cant feed or sustain everyone but generosity does breed a healthy community spirit within a group or gathering of like minded people. It is a human instinct to survive therefore it is possible to make it through an EMP type event. Survival minded people benefit from being prepared for this type of event.

Extreme Weather  » 

The content of this page is intended to aid those seeking information which may be conducive for surviving extreme or spontaneous temperatures and climate swings that may present hazardous conditions for humans. It is understood that many regions with harsh climates are home to inhabitants who have acclimated to those conditions over time. Seasons come and go. As the years pass by we tend to get used to weather patterns discounting the possibility for extreme and unexpected events. As a result we can become less concerned with preparing for any such calamity. Many humans have become so acclimated to seasonal changes that they are caught off guard when  extreme conditions arise. Ultimately anything that supports human existence which can be effected by extreme levels of unexpected temperatures deserves consideration when preparing for calamities as such. Though it is natural to experience swings and changes in weather patterns occasionally the earth reaches a tipping point during a cycle when weather patterns and relative temperatures dip above or below expectations. It is then when calamities associated with those conditions can occur. People who are accustomed to extreme environments are typically prepared but not impervious to unexpected weather changes. Many travelers in history have lost their lives during extreme and rapid swings in temperature even after having been prepared. Considerations given to unexpected changes in weather is certainly conducive for survival minded people who are trying to live beyond the moment or disaster.

Flu Epidemics, Pandemics & Outbreaks  »  Flu mini

It is no secret that cold and flu viruses commonly live among the human race. By this day and age we have been exposed to just about every naturally occurring flu that exists on the planet. Avoiding them has always been the challenge, ... especially during the season of flu and sickness. Yes, ... the human race is schooled in the aspects of treating symptoms associated with colds and flu viruses as well preventing exposure to the most common of viruses but what happens when a new strain of flu enters a community? Though it does not seem to likely it is better to be prepared for such an event than NOT, .... because we can. Viral engineering has taken flu's and colds to a whole new level. As we advance in technology we also become subject to the weaponizing of said technology. Truth be told, ... efforts do exist to modify and create new strains of nasty viruses just because we can. The results are stored somewhere "safe" until someone decides it can be used or should be destroyed. Containment of such super viruses are implemented through fallible measures also created by humans. Precautionary measures and procedures  as such can fail for a multiplicity of reasons which are planned for accordingly, .... just as it is for a containment breach. Why do you think that is? Because nothing is fool proof? A containment breech of a super virus may not be inevitable but is prepared for none the less by those who make them as well as those who know the destructive value of said super viruses. If they prepare for such a contingency than shouldn't you? It's all about the desire to live, isn't it?

Home Invasion  » 

Home invasions are not natural occurring events. They are thought up and executed by humans. In areas prone to criminal or malicious behavior it is generally accepted that home invasions are more likely to happen resulting in a higher percentage of residents taking precautions. People who live in areas where crime is uncommon or less likely to occur are not as prepared for a home invasion as they should be. Despite where we live we are all susceptible to crimes involving our homes or property. The fact is that most all home invasions can be detoured or prevented through a series of efforts & precautionary measures. Some precautions are mild but obvious with the intent to discourage assailants from proceeding with the invasion or crime. Other measures are extreme and extend far beyond the detouring objective. The most extreme efforts result in a no tolerance policy where initiating a home invasion is not worth the consequences for even the most experienced attackers. In many cases perpetrators have payed with their lives for attempting a home invasion. A situation that is not always avoidable when targeting the wrong home.

Identity Theft  » 

Personal identity can be taken in a multiple of ways. Criminals who seek to take or assume the identity of another accomplish their tasks by stealing information from anywhere such as garbage cans, dumpsters as well as mail boxes and outgoing mail piles ready for postal pickup. It does not take a phenomenal amount of information to assume or create a fictitious identity in the name of another, (victim). Much of the information required to create a fictitious identity can be found on credit card bills or other financial statements, pre-approved letters and official documents of sorts. Identity can be stolen from personal computers or by the use of a computer by way of HACKING. Most people keep a great deal of personal information stored or recorded on a computer and phones. With such information a criminal can apply for a change of address and create a new identity in the name of another. Smart vehicles with remote and computerized access control are also subject to being hacked with the intent to gain access to the valuables inside. Most vehicles are known to contain useful data applicable for replicating identity.  As we advance in technology we also present more opportunities for identity theft to occur. The aim is to keep our information safe from malicious use. Awareness and preventative measures are advantageous to adopt as normal behavior.

Landslides, mud drifts & sinkholes » 

Surviving a landslide or similar event means to have a general preparedness for any such occurrence where the ground beneath our feet becomes unstable and mobile. As mentioned in the descriptions of a land or mud slide these events are often triggered by volcanic or geological adjustments. A general preparedness means to expect road closures, power failures and a lack of available resources all of which should be prepared for accordingly. Going deeper into the specifics of this subject encompasses an array of solutions applicable to preventative measures for a variation of landslides and suggested actions to consider when caught off guard during an event. The odds of perishing in such an event are variable depending on the region. The Earth continues to reshape itself as the overall population grows expanding  into new territories with roads and cities. It is reasonable to accommodate for additional occurrences as we disturb and reconfigure the landscape with tunnels, reservoirs, roads and buildings. Despite the marvels of modern engineering we are still subject to the continuing effects associated with geological adjustments. It is advantageous to enhance our chances in surviving any such calamity or disaster. Awareness and self reliance is key.
